Ties That Bind Project

You might remember several months back when I was involved in the "Ties that Bind" Ovarian Cancer Research Art Collabrative. Since then, some AMAZING things have happened.The Doll has been finished, has been to the publishers, and returned home only to be offered up in an auction where the proceeds benefit Ovarian Cancer research.Please visit the website (to the right) to see the full pictures and view the wonderful finished creation, as well as purchase some tickets to benefit the research, and maybe win a beautiful one of a kind piece of art, created by tons of todays movers and shakers in the mixed media art world! (and a few humble pieces of mine!)

To see the individual charms and ties up close you may also visit the blog.

New classes afoot....

Sorry I've been absent, I had a couple of location photo shoots that took me out of state, and a quick trip to Canada in the last couple weeks. Lots of miles on the body. I've been busy during the trips creating the workbooks for some upcoming art classes, and the ideas are flowing like crazy.

I've got a new class that is a personalized caricature in clay. It's the meshing of my 2 favorite methods of using liquid clay, transfer and scrapbooking techniques. As soon as I have time to take more recent photos I'll post them immediately.

In the meantime, imagine the blending of the above two pieces processes, and on canvas to boot!
I hope you are all enjoying this lovely summer so far! More in a day or so!

And the winners are....

Yahoo! We had over 25 comments, so I'm giving away 2 stuffed boxes of goodies from the studio! (And I've been in the midst of a major re-organization and cleaning, so I've found tons of interesting things!)

So with no further ado- Jackie Smith, and Elaine! I will be contacting you for your mailing info so these bulging boxes can make their way to your crafty little hands ASAP!

Congratulations! I hope you will enjoy your goodies and you will share with us some of your creations that might occur with your new stash!
